Upon arrival we were greeted by lovely Vera who showed us around the flat. Our first impressions were that it was suprisngly bigger than what we were expecting from the pics! The decor was minimalist/urban cool and felt luxurious yet comfortable and welcoming. The kitchen/dining space is spacious and bright - if we were staying for longer and weren't spoilt for choice for food options we would have loved to stay in and cook! Small touches like the bottle of water, Nespresso coffee and fluffy white towels made it feel almost like we were staying at a hotel. What was most valuable about the experience were Vera's recommendations for restaurants - they were all spot on and the food of Sicily is one of the things we loved so much about the trip. As well as all of this, Vera was always just a /phone call away when we needed assistance - and being the silly tourists that we are this was a life saver at times! My husband and I highly recommend Vera's airbnb, we'll be returning back there if we are ever lucky enough to return to beautiful Sicily again.

If you are interested in staying with the locals then this is the spot for you. Excellent host and location. Everything is within walking distance which was fantastic. the apt is spacious and well appointed. There is a huge terrace which was great to sit and relax with a glass of wine. The local neighbours were friendly and helpful despite the language barrier. Will definitely be back to stay again.

Vera was a really great host. She gave us a lot of great tips and helped us with all of our questions. The flat was amazing and looked even better than on the pictures. It was easy to get to the main sights and to the airport even without a car. All in all it was a great experience to stay in Veras apartment.

The location is perfect in the old town. Between teatro massimo and cattedrale. You cannot have better. 3 minutes to the best food market in Palermo. The apartment is beautifully designed and well equipped. And Vera is so helpful and welcoming. I cannot recommend this stay highly enough. Home from home in Palermo!

Vera's place is one of the most gorgeous airbnbs i've ever stayed at. It looks even bigger and more upscale than the photos. Vera herself is kind, warm, and so helpful and we honestly could not have asked for a better host.
